WHAT IS TECH AND TRAVEL?

Tech and Travel is a hybrid of entrepreneurial journalism and a digital nomad’s – my – tales from my trips around the world. The site is founded by me, Simone Okkels, a tech and startup journalist from Denmark.

In the summer of 2017, I decided to quit my job and pursue my dream of being a self-employed, digital nomad bound to nowhere and everywhere. I work as a freelancer for different publications in Denmark, writing mostly about tech and innovation. Tech and Travel is my free space where I share with you all my experiences from my trips – ranging from delicious food to hotels, to co-working spaces and exciting startups.

During the last five years, my work has taken me to large areas of the world. I have gathered a unique insight into the world of startups, and through my many travels, I meet many inspiring people, find so many good stories, and get introduced to so much fantastic innovation, that I needed a place to share it.

Here’s to the world

Here at Tech and Travel, you’ll find four categories: Meet the world, Taste the world, See the world and Guides. Within these I’ll write portraits and stories about startups, I’ll share with you the best places to eat – on a budget or on a splurge – which hotels to stay at when traveling for work or fun, my encounters with different cultures, blogs on my thoughts on trends and meetings with interesting people. 

I cover a lot of events, both professionally and for fun, which I will also share with you here and at Tech and Travel’s own Instagram @techandtravel_dk. Or you can follow my personal account which is featured in the right column. 

All content is written and curated by me, Simone Okkels. I am not compensated to provide my opinion on events, products, startups or the like. The views and opinions are my own. If Tech and Travel at some point become a source of income, I will clearly identify sponsored or paid content. Also, I don’t collect or store any information on people visiting my site. 

If you have any questions about content, sponsorships or collaboration, please send me an email at sokkels@me.com
